Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the first public preview of Adobe® Edge Reflow, a new responsive design tool for Web designers and developers creating websites and content for screens of virtually all sizes. In addition, the company released new feature updates for Adobe Edge Animate, Adobe Dreamweaver® and Adobe Edge Code preview. All today’s announced product releases are available exclusively to Adobe Creative Cloud™ members.
Adobe Edge Reflow is a new responsive Web design tool for creating layout and visual designs with CSS and is available immediately as a preview at no charge in Creative Cloud. Edge Reflow features an intuitive resizable design surface that shows how layouts and visuals will adapt to different screen sizes. Leveraging the power of CSS, Edge Reflow enables users to create high fidelity Web designs on the application’s native Web surface. It maintains the design vision, through development, by allowing users to preview in the browser, inspect their design in real-time via Edge Inspect extension, and extract the CSS for use in Edge Code, Dreamweaver or any code editor. During the preview period, Adobe is actively seeking user feedback for Edge Reflow in order to help evolve the product. Users are encouraged to submit their feedback to Adobe through Github at https://github.com/edge-reflow/issues.
Adobe also announced important updates to Adobe Edge Animate to give it powerful new CSS-based features, including gradients, CSS filters, and enhanced font support. Users will now be able to style and animate elements using radial or linear gradients, and preview Edge Web Fonts* live in a new interface. New CSS filter support for Edge Animate allows users to take advantage of exciting CSS capabilities found in modern WebKit browsers, including blur, greyscale, sepia, brightness, contrast, hue-rotate, invert and saturate filters. Previously, filter effects could only be achieved using tools like Adobe Photoshop®.
In addition, Adobe delivered an update to Adobe Dreamweaver exclusively for Creative Cloud members that improves interoperability with the Adobe Edge Tools & Services family and includes several new features to enhance code authoring ability and workflow. Fluid grid layout, a feature first introduced with Adobe Dreamweaver CS6, now allows developers to leverage class tags in addition to ID tags and features a new editing interface. Developers can also now easily preview, select and incorporate Edge Web Fonts into their Dreamweaver projects.
This preview release of Adobe Edge Code includes features such as Live Development, which allows users to see changes in the browser immediately as they make code edits, and also Quick Edit, which lets users edit code in context instead of switching between files. This latest update adds code hinting for CSS properties and HTML tags and attributes, making this release an even more productive code editor for web designers and developers working with Web standards.
Paul Gubbay, vice president of product development, Digital Media business, Adobe
- “The job of a Web designer and developer has become more challenging, with Web standards progressing rapidly and the number of screen sizes and form factors increasing exponentially. Adobe Creative Cloud enables our teams to deliver product innovation to our customers the moment that new features are ready, helping designers and developers tackle the new challenges of the modern Web and more seamlessly create websites and interactive content for the latest browsers and different screen sizes.”

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
